Things to do near Westchase - Mahaffey Theater

The Mahaffey Theater sits at the south end of downtown St. Petersburg, FL, about a 30 minute drive from Westchase.  Located right on the water front and adjacent to the Salvador Dali Museum.  One of the Mahaffey Theaters regular programs is a Saturday night performance by the Florida Orchestra.

 

Mahaffey Theater

I had not attended any performances in many years, remembering that my previous visits were somewhat disappointing with the rather worn condition of the building; however, in 2005 the entire complex received a $20 million dollar upgrade and refurbishing.  The results are quite appealing!

Tonight I had the pleasure of attending a performance by The National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba who played Gershwin, Beethoven, and several Cuban compositions.  A piano soloist, Ignacio “Nachito” Herrera, was my favorite part of the program and his encore performance was magical.

The Mahaffey as it is know hos many events including children's concerts.  It currently has a Titanic exhibit which is scheduled to run through March 2013
